on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it easier to raise, they are saying between $40 to $50. so there is a smaller nature. that's historically consistent. inaugural speeches tend to be over hyped and anti-climactic, and the second one, even more so. >> thanks. >> a look back at the president's first term and a look ahead, when we come back. >> this is fox new

here to announce the closure of guantanamo. four years ago when president obama can into office and issued the executive order that we all remember promising to close guantanamo, that was absolutely the right thing to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have sadly been filled by the obama administration and the united states congress and the courts and the majority of the mainstream media and by the american people. that is sadly the truth. when you look at what that means -- what is it mean for the people in guantanamo? the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that have of the prisoners in guantanamo have been cleared for release from that prison by a very sober and responsible group of government officials and lawyers and all the government departments and intelligence agencies in a report that was issued three years ago. as moe put it, these are not people who needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence on the united states and yet they have not been released. united states went to a very high
have a budget as well. every year the president is required by law to submit a budget proposal to congress by february 4. the obama administration has already informed congress that for the fourth time in five years, it will be late submitting a budget to your representatives. the president has already missed more budget deadlines than any of his predecessors. the house and senate are also required by law to submit a budget each year. by april 15, tax day. the democratic one senate has not approved such a resolution in almost four years. this is not the result of washington gridlock. harry reid said it would be foolish for his party and then does the senate to produce a budget. we disagree. with more than $16 trillion in debt, we believe is foolish not to have a budget. in the house, and it will again meet our legal obligations to pass the budget on time. our budget will moderate spending, pay our bills, and keep the government running. it will be planned to slowly but surely, what our nation out of debt, deficit, and declined garrett on your behalf, we will insist the democrat
